Welcome to Church Music Scotland

resources and guidance for music in worship

Enabling Scottish churches to use music more effectively in worship

What is Church Music Scotland?

Church Music Scotland is continuing the work formerly done by the RSCM Scotland team, including:

  • support and guidance for clergy, worship leaders and musicians
  • singing days around the country
  • training for musicians and clergy
  • Young Scottish Voices
  • the annual Dunblane Summer School
  • events for singers, organists and other musicians

Behind the scenes, we’re setting up governance structures to enable Church Music Scotland to work legally and effectively.
We’re now a Community Interest Company (see below).

We’ll write to our newsletter subscribers shortly with details of our planning for the current year.

Canticles and Songs of Praise: Study and Sing

  • Saturday 11 May 2024, 9.30 am – 5.30 pm
  • Laidlaw Music Centre, Queen’s Terrace, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9QF

‘Canticles’ or scriptural hymns appear in the Bible distinct from the Book of Psalms, particularly in contexts of praise and celebration. 

Join staff from St Andrews University’s Sacred Music programme to explore some of these texts, using a range of different musical settings from the 16th century to the present day.

Adult singers of all levels of experience are welcome. 

At the end of the day, all who wish are welcome to join us as we sing and pray together using this material in St Andrew’s Episcopal Church, adjacent to the Laidlaw Music Centre.

This event follows last year’s highly successful RSCM: Sing the Psalms Day.

Places are limited, so if you want to come to the event, email Dr Jane Pettegree to preregister.

Dunblane Summer School

Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th July, Dunblane Cathedral
